republicans in the gubernatorial races of 2010. there were countiss that president obama one by ten points and scott walker in june won by 20 points. these more rural counties are competitive, ticket splitters and those are going to be counties to watch in central wisconsin come election day. host: how does early voting factor in? guest: we don't have the same tradition. it's been growing but not at the same level. it's known as absentee voting. the window for early voting is narrower now and it's harder to track in wisconsin because we don't have registration by party so if you're trying to figure out which side is winning the early vote, it's more difficult. so i don't think we can say with confidence who has the advantage in the early voting in wisconsin. it will be significant but it won't be at the level like states like colorado. host: are voters required to show i.d.? guest: a law was passed to do that but it's held up in court so they will not be required to show photo i.d. in this election. host: how about as votes are tab bue lated what are the systems in place and what ma

time. some people believe if president obama wins, house stays republican and the senate leans more republican. we're more likely to get a grand bargain on deficit reduction because the president will be more likely to make a deal for 2014 and 2016. they can't spend the next four years not doing anything about the deficit. we could see a deal to reduce the budget deficit and that would be a net positive for all the financial markets if that happens. but if the republicans were to run the table, you would see a pretty big rally on wall street. >> if president obama stays in office, do you think we'll take another peek at the american jobs act? >> i certainly think that's something the president is going to bring to the table. and perhaps that could be part of a bargain around the debt ceiling. one thing we've heard a lot of talk about, not so much from the white house although they've suggested they're open to it, is some sort of extension not to the payroll tax cut, but something like that. and, actually, just from the economics -- >> which is the only thing that republicans liked o

obama record than the president does himself. is there a downside here? >> i got to say, those comments are pretty laughable. you may remember earlier in the campaign, the republicans tried to use bill clinton to complain about barack obama. after clinton spoke at the democratic convention, he gave a pourl and effective speech. republicans got silent on the subject. if all they do now is whine about him when he's one of our most popular former presidents, when he's the president with the economic record that really showed the kind of investing in america that president obama is now doing, works for us economically. if the republicans want to stand off in the background examiand , that speaks to where they are, but it doesn't say much to the american people. >> there's an article that matt bye wrote in the "new york times" that says bill clinton may have hurt the president's campaign by advising him the best way to go after mitt romney was to hang the sign of severe conservative around his neck. he should sell a romney presidency as a third term of george w. bush. would you agree with th
